Vera Wang LOVE Collection 3/4 CT. T.W. Diamond Frame Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold
Beautiful but not durable
This was the first piece of very nice jewelry I have ever owned. I always thought engagement rings were more durable than the sterling silver rings I have had in the past. My fiance gave me this ring in the spring of 2014. Now we are almost in winter and I have had to get it fixed twice. I am a pretty active person so anytime I am doing something strenuous or going to the gym I typically take it off so I do not ruin it. Well, it still got damaged. It got bent out of shape once(see pic), which I have no idea how because I had not lifted anything heavy or squished it. I got that fixed (thank goodness for the protection plan I had purchased). When I got it back it was not completely straight but I thought I would live with it until after the holidays. Well, then I noticed one of the smaller stones had fallen out of the ring, which is covered by the warranty. After that, I sent it in to get straightened as well as replace the missing stone. I am currently waiting to get it back.
So in conclusion, I originally bought the protection plan just to get the ring re-sized, but it turned out to be a wise purchase for me as the ring does not seem to be very durable and I foresee it needing more repairs in the future. It bends a little too easily and the stone fell out way too easily.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this ring! I would just not recommend it for someone with an active lifestyle.

Love this ring!!!!!
Received this ring on Saturday and I love it!!! It's beautiful and is so sparkly. Looks amazing on my finger, not to large or to small.

Wonderful Decision; Don't listen to bad reviews!
I got this ring from my fiancé last year and absolutely love it. I have gotten SO many compliments on it, it's unreal. It's unique and affordable for someone who isn't looking to spend 5k+ on a ring. I would make this decision over and over again. I think a lot of halo style rings get too large looking, but this one fits perfectly on your finger and doesn't look like you're over doing it. It is SO sparkly and shines up wonderfully. I've never felt like the halo was taking over the diamond [like another reviewer stated]. And also, if you have concern's about Vera; let me tell you, you shouldn't. Someone had said you couldn't buy other brands of rings to go with it; and that's just untrue. My wedding band is not a Vera, purchased at Zales, and they didn't pressure me into the Vera at all; in fact, they will send it off to Vera to be soldered if you need it to be. The ONLY con about Vera is that when you get it sized or whatnot they have to send it to their main jeweler in Texas; so it can take a few weeks.
This being said, I have never had a problem with Zales or with this ring. I get compliments all the time, even though it is only a 1/3 carat ring. I'm happy I made my choice; I promise you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful and Sparkly
This ring is the perfect size. Even though the center stone isn't huge, all the sparkle makes up for it. It catches everyone's eye and I have already received so many compliments on it. The sapphire makes it extra special and unique. I'm getting the matching Vera Wang band and can't wait til I get to wear it as a set!
